In addition to our July advertisers, we were graced with two Gold sponsors this year! We can’t say enough about our partners in this donation. dnata is one of the largest suppliers of combined air services in the world offering aircraft ground handling, cargo, travel, and flight catering services across five continents. They are huge supporters of many organizations located at our NY airports. dnata and their employees support global activism with their dnata 4 good organization. They are able to donate millions of dollars and countless volunteer hours all around the world for various causes that impact us all. We are thrilled to work with them on the 2018 Charitable Giving Campaign for the USO. dnata is a proud employer of military veterans and active reservists right here at JFK. We thank dnata for their extensive commitment to our veterans and our local community.

Our second gold sponsor is NAPA Auto Parts. Napa is proud to service professionals, do-it-yourselfers and everyday drivers with quality parts and supplies to keep cars, trucks, and equipment performing safely and efficiently. NAPA is a huge supporter of Veteran organizations such as Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF), a not-for-profit organization that serves United States military personnel, wounded or injured in service to our nation, and their families. They have donated over a million dollars and counting for that cause. NAPA also serves transitioning military personnel, veterans and military family members by providing a pathway to successful careers with NAPA or to become store owners. Thank you to the NAPA team for your generosity and participation in activities that support our local aviation community and our veterans and active military.

The Metropolitan Airport News and our partners came together on August 23rd in the jetBlue garden at JFK to enjoy a breakfast sponsored by HMSHost. Metropolitan Airport News was thrilled to be able to hand over a check to the USO of Metropolitan New York in the amount of $9,200. That money will go towards supporting the mission of the USO to strengthen America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation. There is no better place to support that mission than at our local airports.

The Metropolitan Airport News wishes to extend our deepest gratitude to all that participated in our July issue. Thank you to Father Chris from our Lady of the Skies chapel for offering a prayer to our soldiers and the airport community. Thank you to John Selden for joining us from Port Authority to be part of this special day.

We look forward to working with you all on our future Charitable Giving campaigns. If we all do a little, it adds up quickly to make a big difference.
